Obama Plans

Former POTUS Obama plans to create ‘a million young Barack’s

An Alinsky Rule 5 Post

The headline of a March 25, 2018 Washington Examiner article read: “Obama envisions creating ‘a million young Barack Obamas’ during speech in Japan.”

“Former President Barack Obama talked about his future plans for his post-presidency life at a conference Sunday in Japan, addressing how he might shape ‘a million’ new, young leaders in his mold…’If I could do that effectively, then — you know — I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas,’ Obama said.  ‘Or, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress.’”

The former President predicted that the Obama Foundation will find “ways in which we can study this phenomenon of social media and the Internet to see are there ways in which we can bring people from different perspectives to start having a more civil debate and listen to each other more carefully.”

Obama noted that there is “great potential that young people have in making a difference” in today’s society where “a lot of our problems are caused by old men.”

The planned hub for the Obama Foundation is the proposed Obama Presidential Center (OPC) on the shore of Lake Michigan, adjacent to the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago campus.

The OPC complex will be funded by private donations; require $100 million in infrastructure improvements; and annex 21 acres from Jackson Park – named after the 17th President of the United States and a slave owner.

Below is a still-shot from a three-minute YouTube video showing Obama reviewing the progress on the design plans for the OPC.

Sources close to people with knowledge of the project suggest that the high-rise structure will contain several floors of faculty offices and classrooms located in the floors above a large auditorium on the ground floor.  An extensive curriculum is being planned that will be administered by a rotating group of visiting political activists and scholars with expertise in social media, the Internet, and civil debate.

Although no Dean for the OPC Instructional School for Civil Dialogue (OPCISCD) has been chosen, persons reportedly under consideration include, but are not limited to, current California Governor Dr. Jerry Brown, Former Democrat Presidential Candidate and U.S. Senator, Dr. Bernie Sanders, and former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration, Dr. Robert Reich.

The proposed faculty and curriculum composition during the start-up phase of the OPCISCD is rumored to include the following:

  • Cass Robert Sunstein, “Wide-spread federal regulations as a means to centrally control a populous
  • Samantha Jane Power, “How to deploy the capabilities of intelligence gathering agencies to falsely discredit your political enemies
  • Susan Elizabeth Rice, “How to deflect undesirable unintended consequences of a disaster to those innocent of any culpability
  • Jonathan Holmes Gruber, “The art of disguising social reengineering intentions by using doublespeak
  • Benjamin J. “Ben” Rhodes, “How to leverage your kinship with a high-ranking media employee into a high-ranking job in the federal government (With guest lecturers brother David Rhodes, President of CBS News, and the husband of Susan Rice, Ian Cameron, ABC News Executive Producer)
  • Special Co- Instructors: The Reverend Alfred Charles Sharpton Jr., Minister Louis Farrakhan, Sr., The Reverend Jeremiah Alvesta Wright Jr. will lead a symposium “On how religion can bring people from different perspectives to start having a more civil debate and listen to each other more carefully”
  • Anita B. Dunn (former Acting White House Communications Director), “Lessons learned from Mao Zedong on how to bring people from different perspectives to start having a more civil debate and listen to each other more carefully”
  • Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, Special visiting lecturer from the Tech Industry on “Why a national individual guaranteed income for all Americans is an essential to bringing people from different perspectives to start having a more civil debate and listen to each other more carefully”

Each cycle of instruction at the OPCISCD will last 6-weeks and, over time, create a “million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”

Former First Lady, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and 2016 Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton will be the Commencement Speaker at the initial graduating class.

Trumped Up: How Criminalization of Political Differences Endangers Democracy (Kindle Edition)

“There are great legal minds; there are those who can also communicate well on television; then there is Dershowitz. The professor is uniquely capable of arguing a position, while putting a premium on legal and ethical legitimacy, not its popularity. Bravo, Dershowitz!” – Chris Cuomo, anchor and reporter, CNN

“This collection shows Alan Dershowitz at his best—passionate, fearless, and occasionally very wrong.” – Jeffrey Toobin, bestselling author of The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life.

“Alan Dershowitz doesn’t twist the constitution to fit an agenda. He tells you what it REALLY means. That’s why he has always been my go-to guy on the law and the Constitution.” – Greta Van Susteren, former anchor at CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC

“This book will reinforce Alan Dershowitz’s well-earned reputation as a brilliant legal analyst who, although often swimming against the established current, is usually right. Dershowitz substitutes his trenchant legal analysis for the wishful thinking and self-aggrandizing moral superiority that is presented by many in the academy and media, as well as Trump’s political opponents. Dershowitz’s arguments should cause all rational citizens to take a deep breath and recognize, as Dershowitz demonstrates, that Trump may be many things, but, under current law and the known evidence, the President is not a criminal. His analysis seems flawless to me.” – Harvey A. Silverglate, Criminal and civil liberties lawyer, author of Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent

In our current age of hyper-partisan politics, nearly everyone takes sides. This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency. It has become difficult to have a reasonable discussion about the most controversial president in our recent history. For Trump zealots, their president has not only committed no crimes, he has done nothing wrong. For anti-Trump zealots, nothing Trump has done—even in foreign policy—is good. Everything he has done is wrong, and since it is wrong, it must necessarily be criminal. This deeply undemocratic fallacy—that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal—is an exceedingly dangerous trend.

Hardening positions on both sides has been manifested by increasing demands to criminalize political differences. Both sides scream “lock ‘em up” instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views.

The real fear, as Alan Dershowitz argues, in this compelling collection, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties as the Left becomes ever more intolerant and the Right slips into authoritarian rhetoric. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional liberalism and conservatism becoming further apart, not just in approach, but in their respect for Constitutional norms that have served us well for more than two centuries.

While Donald Trump is not the only cause of this profound division, his election drew it to the surface and made it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Unless we as a nation begin to focus again on what unites us rather than on what divides us, America might not survive the next decade.
